I am using iTunes with Windows 7 64bit. A couple of days ago my pc downloaded the latest iCloud update in the Apple Updater. Since then when I start iTunes it will lock up when opened requiring a task manager shutdown to exit.


I traced the problem to a process called APSDaemon.exe which seems to be an Apple process that runs on Windows. As soon as I shut this process down iTunes then unfreezes and I can use it normally.


I hope this helps anyone else suffering this latest issue with iTunes for Windows. I hope Apple fixes this problem ASAP.
